RUROUNI KJS's ARCADE SOUL CALIBUR FAQ for DREAMCAST PLAYERS
======================================================
Version 3.0 (Final)

is to be made from use of this document. This version of this FAQ is 
authorized for publication solely on GameFAQs (www.gamefaqs.com), 
www.guardimpact.com., and Khari J. Sampson's personal webpages. 

This final version of this long-lived FAQ is intended for Soul Calibur fans 
who began by playing the Dreamcast home version of the game and who wish to 
play the arcade version. There are numerous differences between the two. 
Many are merely graphical, but new moves were added in the home version, 
and many more existing moves were tweaked.

Those still playing SC in arcades are likely to be experienced, expert players,
so you don't need an unfortunate handicap like trying to use a favorite move 
that isn't available! Learn to play around the loss with this FAQ!

WHAT'S NEW IN THIS VERSION?
===============================
Properly formatted for viewing at last:)
New abbreviations for downed positions
Removed "Putting it all together key" (y'all should know this stuff by now.)
Reduced Ground Hit (GH) notations to only those guaranteed, as many are 
unreliable against smaller characters.
Removed much of the story info.

ADDED:
Dreamcast moves that DC owners must forget about in the hardcore arcade 
field. :)
Notes on different move properties for arcade version vs. DC version.
General notes on arcade-DC differences.
Edge Master's unique move as Kilik/MiNa.
New commentaries for each character.

Welcome again to the stage of history...

I. GENERAL KEY AND CONVENTIONS

A. COMMAND CONVENTIONS
======================================
(Button commands are always in CAPS)
A: horizontal slash. Usually hits high.
B: vertical slash. Hits mid.
K: Kick.

(Joystick commands are always in lowercase)
 f: tap forward
 b: tap back
 u: tap up
 d: tap down
uf: tap diagonally between up-forward
df: tap diagonally between down-forward
ub: tap diagonally between up-back
db: tap diagonally between down and back
 n: neutral; no direction
qcf: quarter circle forward, (Fireball motion)
qcb: quarter circle back, starting at down and ending back; (bka the 
     Hurricane Kick motion)
hcf: half circle forward, from back to down and ending forward; (bka the 
     Yoga Flame motion)
hcb: half circle back, from forward to down and ending back; (bka the 
     Reverse Yoga Flame motion)

[ ]: this means to hold the direction or button inside the brackets.
  r: Release a button being held.
 ~ : the command following this should be done real fast, *right* after 
the preceding one.
  /: this means "or." (ex: u/d+B either up or down plus B will work.)
  =: the move following this may be added after the preceding move above it. 

B. Hit conventions
======================================
h: the move must be blocked high, but can be ducked completely.
m: the moves hits mid. Must be blocked standing up. Duckers will be hit.
l: The move hits low. Must be blocked low or jumped over.
*: the move preceding this symbol will stagger a blocking foe. If on 
either end of a string (Ex: *hhh*), all moves will stagger.
!: this move is unblockable!
Capital M: This is a Special mid hit. Unlike most m attacks, it can be 
blocked crouching.

C. Abbreviations and Terms
========================================
8: 8 Way Run (free walking). Some moves only work from this position.
8WR: Alternate abbreviation for 8 Way Run.
BW: Back to opponent. Some moves only work if you or foe is in this position.
CD: this move is a Crouch Dash. Ducks high attacks.
CH: Counterhit. Interrupting a foe's moves offers greater damage and special 
properties to your own, such as making strings comboable.
CLN: Clean Hit. 
DLY: this move is delayable-i.e. you can pause before entering a command 
instead of committing to the whole thing at the outset.
F: Far. Usually affects damage.
FC: Fully Crouched. Some moves can only be done from this position.
FD: Lying Face Down, regardless of position.
FDF: Lying Face Down, Feet toward enemy.
FDH: Lying Face Down, Head toward enemy.
GH: Ground Hit. This move will hit a fully prone enemy. (See note below).
GI: Guard Impact. Deflects or parries attacks.
LD: Lyuing Down on back, regardless of position.
LDF: Lying Down on back, Feet toward enemy.
LDH: Lying Down on back, Head toward enemy.
N: Near. Usually affects damage.
RC: This move recovers crouching. Any While Standing (WS) attack will link.
RO: Ring Out; this move can often ring out an opponent near the edge.
SCU: Spirit Charge Unblockable. This move is unblockable (but GI-able) after 
     a Spirit Charge.
SS: Sidestep move. Dodges most vertical attacks.
TH: Throw
WS: While Standing. Move must be done while rising from a crouched position.
1st, 2nd, 3rd (etc): Denotes which hit of the move has an accompanying effect.

GENERAL NOTE ON GROUND HITS: any low attack will hit a rising opponent who has 
not opted to wakeup blocking low. However, some low moves will miss a victim 
lying perfectly still. For this reason, only moves that are guaranteed to hit 
a prone target regardless of their size are marked as ground hits (GH).

D. STUNS (ONLY occur if you score a Counterhit [CH])
===================================================
BDS: Bound stun; victim bounces off ground into air. Ends LDF.
CPS: Crumple stun. Victim slowly falls to the ground a bit faster than DO. 
     Ends FDH. Escape: G right before touching the floor.
DOS: Double Over Stun, victim grabs gut and slowly falls over. Ends FDH. 
     Escape: G at moment of falling.
FBS: Fall Back Stun. Victim slowly topples over on back. Ends LDF. 
     Escape: G while falling. 
HFS: "Hot Foot" Stun. Victim holds hurt foot, hopping on the other before falling.
LCS: Lift crumple stun. Victim gets knocked up a bit before crumpling 
     as in C Stun. Ends FDH.
SPS: Spin stun. Victim spins in place twice for a full 40-60 frames.

II. GENERAL VARIATIONS FROM DREAMCAST VERSION:
--Backward jump attacks will not knockdown in Dreamcast version, but may in 
Arcade. Also, the damage remains constant in Arcade, regardless of the direction 
jumped or whether jumping from a [G] position.
--8-Way Run cannot be buffered in Arcade as in Dreamcast.
--In general, Spirit Charge Unblockables (SCU) in the Arcade are less numerous 
but way stronger than on DC, as their original purpose was for defeating overly 
defensive players (read: turtles)
--Voice in the arcade version is limited to yells, so certain verbal cues that 
may telegraph certain moves on DC will be changed or missing.
--However, standard G+A and G+B throws are sometimes telegraphed by a distinctive 
yell in the Arcade, so an alert player can learn to break them correctly.
--Holding Start during stage selection will give you a transparent character 
instead of the metallic ones on DC. This can be an (unfair) advantage in the 
hands of highly skilled players, especially in darkly-lit stages. 


III. THE CHARACTERS AND THEIR MOVES
=================================
ASTAROTH
aka Soldier of the Heretic, "Asta"
Age: 3......Height: 6'4"......Weight: 209......Birthday: 9/3....Blood type: none
Weapon: the giant axe "Klsdf Py Gyst"
Fighting style: Glkks
Nation: Hell, probably
Stage: The Edge of Chaos (Kunpaetku Shrine on DC)
BGM: Bred From the Gap

DC-ONLY MOVES:
NONE

IN ARCADE VERSION:
-Poseidon Tide Rush (qcb+AAAAA) won't throw unless only first A is pressed. 
Also can only move b/f while spinning.
-Body Splash (f+B+K) doesn't GI attacks.
-Command Kick (b+K) only hits once and ends RC.
-Delayed Stamp of Hades (8,u/d+[K]) does more damage, doesn't launch.
+Discus (db+A) is always SCU, regardless of delay.
+Titan Ax (A+B) is SCU.
+Bull Rush (ff+K) is SCU, supposedly.
NO 8WR VERSION IN ARCADE:
-Tidal Wave/ Breath of Hades b+A+B / b+[A}+[B]
-Guard Crusher (B+K)
-Body Splash (f+B+K)
NO FC INPUT IN ARCADE:
-Guard Crusher (B+K)
-Burial (enemy on ground, d+A+B/B+K)

NOT SCU IN ARCADE:
Tornado Spike (ff+AB)
Reverse Spiral Ax (WS+A)
Great Divide (BB)
Lower Command Kick (bb+K)
Delayed Stamp of Hades (8,d/u+K)

Astaroth gained no new moves in the Dreamcast version of Soul Calibur and
didn't need any. Despite his low speed, Astaroth is definitely one of the 
best characters on either incarnation. Opponents will attempt to overwhelm 
Astaroth with speed. Use the GI deflects and parries heavily to set up Asta's 
deadly throwing game.

WIN POSES
G: Twirls axe heavily overhead, then slashes the blade into the floor 
viciously. Power version (hold stick up) adds an "unblockable lightning" 
pause before the slash.
A: Beats chest once, twice, three times, then raises a fist. Each action 
is accompanied by a different color flash and an explosion. Power version
(hold stick left/right) adds a lightning strike to each beat.
B: Twirls axe behind his back, chops either side of an imaginary enemy's 
head. Power version (stick down) adds white motion trails in twirl.
K: Twirls axe and slams the head on the ground behind him, holding the 
handle upright and planting a boot on the blade. Lighting crackles through 
him. No power variation.


CERVANTES
==============================
Is not in the Arcade version at all. So learn some characters other than the 
original pirate cheesemaster, whydoncha? >:P


EDGE MASTER
released after 21 weeks
===============================
aka the Master of Blades
Age:unknown......Height: 5'9......Weight: 176......Birthday: 1/1......Blood: O
Weapon: whatever
Fighting style: whatever
Nation: unknown
Stage: Pure Training Ground at Dusk (Proving Grounds on DC)
BGM: The New Legend

Edge Master is for experts only, due to his changing styles. But he does about
12% more damage per move than the characters he copies.

MOVES
Edge Master mimics the moves of a random character, changing each round. As 
Kilik/MiNa, though, he has a unique variation:

Move-----------------Command------Hits---Damage------Comments
Wind Divide Flare....8,d/u+AAA....mll....25,30,30....3rd hit must be timed exactly

WIN POSES
Mimics the fighter whose style he's using.


HWANG
Released after 3 weeks
===============================
Hwang Sung Kyung, aka the Patriot with the Burning Soul
Age: 28......Height: 5'7"......Weight: 137.....Birthday: 8/8......Blood: AB
Weapon: Chinese sword "Blue Thunder"
Fighting style: Hwang's Long Blade
Nation: Korea
Stage: Remains in the Desert (Silk Road Ruins on DC)
BGM: Beyond the Horizon

DC-ONLY MOVE
Earth Cross Kick (d+K~B)

IN ARCADE VERSION:
 Twin Heavens (A+B) can't be done FC, but both hits are SCU.
-Ultimate Void Divide (df+A+B) can't be done FC.
-Dancing Leaf Kick (A+K) can't be done FC.
-Separating Thrust (aka Splitting Red Sky (ff+B~[b]) only links to Rain Storm 
if the move doesn't connect.
-Opening Void Slash (db+B) doesn't RC.
-False Radiant Cross (FC,df+BB) doesn't knock down, nor is it SCU.
-Forced Divide (df+B+K) can't be done FC.
-Willow Slice (db+B+K) can't be done FC.
-Sunset Dance Strike (A~K) has NO 8WR VERSION IN ARCADE.
NOT SCU IN ARCADE:
Base Return Blade (A~B)
Hail Storm (B~A)
False Diving Thrust (WS,B~A)
Radiant Cross (FC,df+B)
False Radiant Cross (FC,df+BB)
Roundhouse Kick (8,d/u+K)
Hook Claw Kick (8,db/ub+K)

Despite the fact that Hwang got a fair amount of tweaking for Dreamcast, he's 
a very effective character in the Arcade version. He shares many of Xianghua's 
evasive moves while added a touch more range (esp. in throwing) and his own 
far more powerful moves. The result is a fighter with a graceful yet brutally 
effective style.

WIN POSES
G: Swings sword about 4 times before spinning to a one-knee crouch with 
his sword stretched straight to the right and his free hand on the floor.
A: Backflips, lands into splits, jumps into a 360 twist, and lands loudly

his mighty flexibility.


INFERNO
==============================
Is not playable in the Arcade version. Edge Master is the closest alternative, 
but he's got less range and fewer unique moves.

Isabella Valentine, mistress of the Wreathing Blade of Isolation
Age: 28......Height: 6'......Weight: 128......Birthday: 12/10......Blood: AB
Weapon: the snake sword Ivy Blade
Fighting style: Unrelated link?

Stage: the Valentine Mansion
BGM: Unblessed Soul

DC-ONLY MOVES
Dancing Insanity (bb+A)
Pleasure Change (A+B)
Caged Silhouette (B,f+[B]K)
Serpent Silhouette (d,df+K)
Pleasure (K~d)
Lamenting Tail (Whip State, A+K)
Pleasure Lash (Whip State, B+K)

IN ARCADE VERSION:
-Ancient Wheel (df+A+K) is just one hit and damage changes with distance.
-Cursed Mark is (d+A) only.
-Insanity Light (ff+A+B) as a close-range throw doesn't KD, but...
+Insanity Light (ff+A+B) is SCU.
+Razor's Bite (db+A+B) always causes a Hot Foot Stun.
-God Whisper's (uf+ABA) 3rd hit isn't guaranteed.
+Serpent's Breath (ff+B) always knocks down.
-Serpent's Vemon (f,d,f+A+K), can hit even if cancelled with perfect timing.
-Spiral Dominance (b+B~AB) can't be delayed or unblockable.

-Rage Kick or Foul Kick (df+K) doesn't stun.
-Raven Catcher (b+K) hits high and is slower.

Ivy got more new moves in Dreamcast than anyone, and she needed them. She 
can be played effectively, but her learning curve is very steep. Her long 
range is her most obvious asset, but her close-range is her stronger suit, 
especially because of her Summon Suffering throw. Mid range is her weakness, 
which puts her at a disadvantage against much of the cast. Learn to herd 
your opponent into her ideal zones.

Kilik was quite improved in the DC version, so you have an uphill battle 
using him as well in the Arcade. Kilik is an odd character in that he's one 
of the smaller ones, but his weapon makes him play more like the big guys 
like Astaroth or Seigfried. Moreover, his very open stance makes him surprisingly 
easy to hit at mid range. His chief advantages are his strong juggle ability, 
long range pokes and excellent fake game.

Lizardman is one of the most hated characters in Soul Calibur because he's 
strong almost to the point of being overpowered. Playing similarly to Sophitia, 
he has most of her strengths (good speed and CH ability) while lacking her 
main disadvantage, short range. There's almost no other character better at 
forcing the ringout since many of his best moves are good at herding opponents 
to and over the edge. He needed few modifications in the home translation.

Maxi only gained two new moves and one SCU on DC, while losing four of the 
latter. If any character needed no power-up, it was Maxi. He's thought by 
many to be the best, due to his great stagger and RO ability, his superb 
change-up ability, and overall priority. He's not quite as fast as his staggers 
make him seem, and he has a very steep learning curve. But rest assured that 
DC skills will transfer back to the Arcade pretty smoothly. :)

MITSURUGI
Heishiro Mitsurugi, (Arthur in certain Asian versions) aka the Mercenary 
in the Warlike Age
Age:25......Height: 5'7......Weight: 143......Birthday: 6/18......Blood: AB
Weapon: the Katana "Shishi-Oh"
Fighting style: Tenpu kosai-ryu Kai
Nation: Japan
Stage: The Inundated Castle (Takamatsu Castle on DC)
BGM: Duelists

DC-ONLY MOVES
Flag Dance (WS+A+B)
Moon Mask Fake (hcb+[B])

IN ARCADE VERSION:
-Wheel Slash can only be done u+A+B
-Wind Hole Lower (f+B~d) only has slow version
-Shadow Kick (uf+K) doesn't stagger
+Mist and Relic can be done in any direction during 8wr
+Steel Slicer (A+B) is SCU
+Hell Flash (8,d/u+B) is SCU

NOT SCU IN ARCADE
Mask (B~f)
Time Hole (FC,df+B)
Heaven Dance (ff+B, DLY B)
Dividing Thrust Mist (MST,B)

Did I say Lizardman was the most hated SC character? He's got competition 
for the role in Mitsurugi. Mitsu is actually one of the most popular fighters. 
He has many balanced strengths and has no real weakness. Where he shines is 
when he's used in a style called "roaching." 
   A roach tries to knock down his opponent, then harass him with a tricky 
but limited mix of wakeup moves. Mitsurugi has a set of moves that seem tailor-
made for roaching; a good player can win the majority of his damage on a 
downed opponent. This is why Mitsu is hated by certain players and loved by 
others.
   Basically, in the arcade is where roaches are made and thrive. The better 
graphics of the DC version allow sharp players to see through roach tricks 
much more easily than in the lower-resolution arcade version, where Mitsurugi 
roaches tend to dominate.

Mitsurugi Key:
MS= Move ends in Mist stance
RL= Move ends in Relic stance

NIGHTMARE
aka the Azure Nightmare
Age:??...Height: 5'6......Weight: 209  Birthday: unknown  Blood: unknown
Weapon: the demonic sword Soul Edge
Fighting style: demonized Zweihander style
Nation: Unknown
Stage: The Ruins of Ostrheinsburg
BGM: In the Name of Father (In Father's Name on DC)

Nightmare Key
NBS: Move ends in Night Behind Stance
NSS: Move ends in Night Side Stance
NLS: Move ends in Night Lower Stance

DC-ONLY MOVES
Earth Trample (qcf+[K])
Axe Kick Winder (8, any but b/f+A+K)

IN ARCADE VERSION:
-Double Grounder (A,d+AA) can't be cancelled to NBS.
-Stomping (delayed)(qcf+[K]) doesn't turn to Earth Trample (DC only move)
+Shadow Slicer (db+A) is SCU.
+Maelstrom (WS+AA) is SCU.
+Rook Splitter (ff+B) is SCU.
+Alternate Cross (8,d/u+B) is SCU.
+Cannonball Feint (NSS, B~A) is SCU.

NO 8WR VERSION IN ARCADE
Flying Edge (ff+A+B)

NOT SCU IN ARCADE
Flying Edge (ff+A+B)
Drop Kick (ff+B+K)

Nightmare (and by extension, Siegfried) gained very little in the translation
to DC. Thus, players will find the master of Soul Edge to be just as usable 
and dominant as on the home console. Though one of the slowest characters, 
the knight boasts one of the best overall ranges of the game and supreme 
change-up ability in his 3 stances.

lightning to A pose, along with a much longer yell.
B:Swings sword around 3 times, then holds it to his right.
K: Deliberately holds blade in front of him, concentrating, as it does 
a lightshow thingy.

Rev. Spiral Ax (WS+A)

On Dreamcast, Rock was given much improvement on his already deadly throwing 
game with an unGI-able grab and the ability to switch up his normal throws. 
You'll also miss his 3-hit string in the arcade. Aside from those tweaks, 
Rock is quite formidable in his original arcade form. He's a serious RO threat, 
esp. with powerful SCU moves he lost on DC. "Rock" your opponents' world with 
the non-evil axeman.

SEUNG MINA
released after 18 weeks
===============================
aka Heart and Soul Girl
Age:19......Height: 5'4......Weight: 106 .....Birthday: 11/3    Blood: A
Weapon: the zanbato Scarlet Thunder
Fighting style: Seung's Long Blade and Ling Sheng Su rod
Nation: Korea
Stage: Remain in the Desert (Hwang's stage, called Silk Road Ruins on DC. 
       MiNa's DC stage, "Maze of the Dead," is not in the Arcade version.)
BGM: Beyond the Horizon (Hwang's music. "Eye to Eye," MiNa's music, is DC-only)

DC-ONLY MOVES:
Strangling Deception (df+A~A)
Shadow Fang (f+B~d)
Air Fang ([B],df+K or df+K~B)
Retreating Sands (db+B+K)
Glory Fan Feint Cancel (FC,AA+B~A+B+K)

Similar to Kilik, MiNa is somewhat less effective in the arcade version. 
She loses many FC options and a number of new moves while not gaining any 
significant SCU moves. Along with her lack of Kilik's powerful juggles and 
an abysmal throw range, MiNa practically bottoms out the roster in terms of 
potential. However, she does boast more low moves than any other character 
and the strongest overall unblockable (Yoshi's suicide is stronger, but it 
damages himself nearly as much).

TAKI
=================================
aka the Underground Hunter
Age:25......Height: 5'7......Weight: 117 ......Birthday: unknown ......Blood: A
Weapon: Ninjatou daggers-Rekki-maru and the evil Mekki-maru
Fighting style: Musou-baton-ryu
>From Japan
Stage: Hokoji Temple (Hoko Temple on DC)
BGM: Cursed Image

Taki Key
PSN: Move ends in Possession stance.

DC-ONLY MOVES
Darkness Shatter (BK,B~[b])
Pure Seal (B~[d])

IN ARCADE VERSION:
-Sealing Punishment (FC,df+K~db) can't be done BK
-Haste Alt. ([G],u+K,K,K) has no uf/ub inputs
+Assassin Strike is SCU.
+Divine Wind (B+K,B) is SCU.

NOT SCU IN ARCADE:
Shadow Shrine (A~f)
Shadow Banishment (B,A,[K])
Oppression (B,[K])
Mat (bb+K)

Like Maxi and Astaroth, Taki has always been a top-tier pick and thus received 
minimal improvements in the DC version of the game. In fact, a pair of her 
most vicious moves are SCU in the arcade, so DC players can learn to dish out 
a whole new level of pain with the Spandexed One.

==================================
VOLDO
aka Hell Guardian
Age: 46......Height: 6'......Weight:?? ......Birthday: 8/25   Blood: A
Weapons: Twin Katar "Shame" and "Blame"
Fighting style: His own
Nation: Italy
Stage: The Money Pit
BGM: Sweet Illusion

Key
BS= Move ends in Blind Stance (back to opponent)
RC= Move ends in Rat Chaser stance

Rat Bite Kick (BS,df+K)
Super Freak Lunge (f+B+K)
Super Freak Retreat (b+B+K)

IN ARCADE VERSION:
-Brain Robber (ub+A) won't turn enemy BK like u/uf versions.
-Blind Dive (df+A+B) can only be done FC
-8wr Guillotine Scissors Alt. is just 8,b+A+B
-Rat Bounce is only FC, B+K
-Rat Slaughter (WL,A) won't KD
-8wr Hell Chop is only (8,b+B)
-Blind Slap's (CR, A,b+A) 2nd hit won't DOS

With nearly all his DC tweaks being improvements, Voldo the freak is slightly 
weaker in the arcade version. But perhaps the SCU property on a pair of his 
most potent moves will lessen the sting.

WIN POSES
G: Voldo rolls forward on his stomach into a weird position with his face 
at the floor and one leg arched over his head. Power (up) adds big red 
sparks at middle and end of both rolls.
A: Waves his arms in slow butterfly circles, ending up on one knee with 
his arms thrust behind him. Power (left/right) adds "shring!" to last wave.
B: Pounds the ground 3 times, scrapes his blades on each other (making 
lightning) and ends in a wide stance, arms pointed diagonally up and down 
respectively. Power (down) adds explosive red lightning to each ground 
thrust and the last blade-scrape.
K: Spins unsteadily, then braces himself with a blade jammed to the floor. 
Power adds blue blurs and a red lightning strike to the final motion.
G+A: Voldo bows gracefully.


XIANGHUA
==================================
aka Itinerant Flower
Age:16......Height: 5'......Weight: 101 .....Birthday: 4/2 ....Blood: B
Weapon: Krita-Yuga
Fighting style: her mother's sword style (aka Whirly-Twirly)
Nation: Ming Empire of China
Stage: Ming Emperor's Villa (Emperor's Garden on DC). There's no fall version.
BGM: Bloom and Harvest

DC-ONLY MOVE
Reverse Shui Shian (db+A+B)

IN ARCADE VERSION:
-Muu Jiann (A+B) 2nd hit can't be delayed or UB
-Ma Chiueh (bb+A+B) is exclusive to 8wr (8, any but f+A+B)
-Guei (LD/FD,A+B) can only be done FD
-Playful Rhythm to Laughing Bear (ff+B~b) only works if it doesn't hit.
+Lower Great Wall (df+B+K/A+K,B+K) is SCU.
NO FC INPUT IN ARCADE:
-Lian Hua Cannon (df+A+B)
-Lower Great Wall (df+B+K)
-Hwu Dye (db+B+K)
-Hou Lee (A+K)

NO 8WR VERSION IN ARCADE
-Feng Yung (A~K)

NOT SCU IN ARCADE
-Lian Hua Twist Left (A~B)
-Muu Jiann Retreat (b+A+B)
-Mei Guei Hua (FC,df+B)
-Mei Guei Hua Feint (FC,df+B,B)
-Shiang Ryh Kwei Feint (WS,B~A)
-Quake Step (d+B+K)

Xianghua loses a few tricks in the arcade version, such as the tricky delay 
to UB on Muu Jiann (A+B), the all-purpose ground-hit defense Guei, and a 
dangerous FC game. But the fact that she only gained one new move in DC should 
tell you that she was plenty effective in the beginning: quick and evasive.

YOSHIMITSU
released after six weeks
======================================
Age:unknown......Height: 5'7......Weight: 126 .....Birthday: unknown  Blood: O
Weapon: the Katana "Yoshimitsu"
Fighting style: Manji Ninjitsu
Nation: Japan
Stage: Water Vein (Water Labryinth on DC)
BGM: Chasing Downstream

DC-ONLY MOVES:
Sudare Wheel (u/ub+A+B)
Yoshimitsu Flash (A+K)
Manji Blood Petals (d+A+KAAAA)
Steel Wind (uf+B+KK)
Rolling Spark (PG,A)
Pogo Leap (PG,B)
Meditation (B+K~[d])

IN ARCADE VERSION:
-Crying Spirit Sword Cancel (ff+A+B~A/B) has a different command: (ff+A+B,G,A/B)
-Fake Turning Suicide (ffA+K) can't be canceled to Pogo or Sit.
-Sword Spirit Lower (f+B~d) only the slow version is available.
+Sword Slice (db+B) can't be GIed.
+Door Knocker (f+B+KBBB) does more damage and last hit is guaranteed on CH.
-Sword Pogo Hop (PG,ub/u/uf) can only go straight up, back or forward.
-Pogo Rush (PG,A+B~[f]) can a different command: (PG,ff). Its range is shorter.
+Shark Attack (ff+B+K,A+B) is SCU.

NOT SCU IN ARCADE:
-Sword Sweep (FC,db,b+A)
-Heretic Sword (FC,df+B)

NO 8WR VERSION IN ARCADE:
-Fake Turning Suicide (8, f+A+K)
-Turning Suicide (8,f+[A]+[K])

In addition to a lot of new moves, Yoshi got a lot of minor changes in DC. 
Most notably, his Pogo and Suicide moves aren't as versatile in Arcade. But 
when you learn the power that is his arcade Door Knocker (f+B+K,BBB), you'll 
hardly miss those other moves. Everything that really makes Yoshimitsu deadly 
was there in the beginning.
